RIP Diego Maradona

Speak for yourself m8. Real football fans werent the ones who acted like that.
Just bandwagoners and politicians.

Equating henry to Maradona on any level is wrong.

Ps The Brits are bitter cunts.

They both cheated. Therefore they are on the same level. iirc the country was in outrage over terry's DOUBLE handball, so to say it was politicians and bandwagoners is a bare faced lie.

Lets face it here now..... We dont like the taste of being cheated just like anyone else. Thierry Henry is sports public enemy number one in this country and rightly so. When he dies what he did on that night will be the first headline.

And when thierry henry dies do you think we will be any different?

At least the brits didnt try to overturn the result. But yeah, they are bitter alright. lol.

They had a right to be upset about it when it happened, as we did.

When it happened.

To be so bitter about it, to make it the main part of your coverage when the Shakespeare of football dies 34 years later, is criminal.

lol.. check out this bit:

I don't care what anybody says, it won the game for Argentina. He scored a brilliant second almost immediately, but we were still reeling from what had happened minutes earlier.

For the first time in the game, we let him get a run on us and he scored. It was a great goal but we were in no doubt — without the first goal he would not have scored the second.

He only scored the second one because he had scored the first one, and mostly because England were still reeling.

There you have it, the worst analysis yet of one of the greatest goals of all time, served with a shot of salty english tears :)


To be fair to england, it is the only example ever of a dodgy decision that has cost a team a goal, so thats never going to be easy to get over.. and now that they the massively successful VAR - that they definitely haven't complained about every minute since it was brought in - it definitely wont happen again

England came close to nicking an equaliser which would have brought the game to extra time after John Barnes on as sub so it's not like they were played off the pitch by Argentina.
 
To be fair that whole 'hand of God' thing was becuase he was being coached by the Cork team in his training to join the GAA club after retiring. That's what I heard and it must be true, I heard it in a pub.
